(Heb. Shachara'yim, שִׁחֲרִיַ ם , double dawn, i.e. the morning and evening twilight; Sept. Σααρήμ v.r. Σααρίν and Σααρήλ; Vulg. Saharaim), a person named among the descendants of Benjamin as the father of several children in the land of Moab by two wives (1 Chronicles 8:8). B.C. ante 1612. Considerable confusion appears to have crept into the text where this name occurs (1 Chronicles 8:3-11), which may perhaps be removed by transposition of the middle clause of 1 Chronicles 8:8 and the whole of 1 Chronicles 8:6 after 1 Chronicles 8:7, and rendering as follows: "And there were sons (born) to Bela, Addar, and Gera, and Abihud, and Abishua, and Naaman, and Achoach [or Achiah], and Gera [repeated by error], and Shephuphan [spuriously inserted], and Huram [spuriously inserted likewise from the sons of Becher]; and (their father) himself banished Naaman, and Achiah [or Achoach], and Gera; and after his dismissal of them, he begot Uzza and Achichud. And these are the descendants of Echud [i.e. Achiah, otherwise Acharah], chiefs of the progenitors of the inhabitants of Geba (afterwards) exiled to Manachath. Shacharayim begot (children) in the land of Moab of his two wives Hushim and Baara [or Chodesh] namely, of the latter, Yobah, and Tsibya, and Meysha, and Malkam, and Yeuts, and Shobya [v.r. Shokyah], and Mirmah, chieftains of their lineage; and of the other, Abitub and Elpaal." (See JACOB).
